ELDHESTARHorses for Sale
Introducing our Horses for Sale
From the start in 2007, Eldhestar’s breeding programme has followed two fundamental ideas. First, we strive to breed well-behaved and well-gaited riding horses that ought to suit most of Eldhestar’s guests. Second, we breed horses with experienced riders in mind, suitable for riding classes and competitions. As our greatest challenge has always been combining well-behaved and reliable horses with soft and simple gaits, a lot of our guests have fallen in love with these fantastic horses and took them home.
You can meet some of our horses for sale on this page. We are currently working on updating this page, so we are still chasing some horses to get a good picture of them or working on filling in the relevant information.
If you rode a horse on one of our tours and fell in love with it, just send us a message with the name and/ or a picture of it and we would be happy to find out more information about if we are willing to sell it.
